After cutting Jake Delhomme, the Panthers announced they had decided Matt Moore would be their starting quarterback in 2010, but there is a vacancy to be filled behind Moore on the depth chart. Moore signed his tender Friday, locking him in for the '10 campaign on a one-year, $3.043 million deal. The only other signcaller under contract with the Panthers is Hunter Cantwell, who is heading into his second season with the club after going undrafted in '09. Finding an experienced quarterback who is comfortable in a backup role will be one of GM Marty Hurney's many important tasks this offseason. There's been speculation about the team bringing in a veteran to compete against Moore for the starting job, but if free agents get the sense they won't have a legitimate chance to start for the Panthers with Moore in tow, Carolina will likely fall on their list of potential suitors.
